|xarhope - musique pour bande dessinée|
In the world of internet music, xarhope seems to be a rather popular name. Xarhope is Samuel Ufus and after several months of emails and a few different albums I am happy to present to you musique pour bande dessinée. When attempting to select a new pandafuzz release rarely am I looking for melodic elements that appeal to me, or even an aesthetic that connects them all. What I am really after is the attraction of something new and in the case of xarhope every album is completely new...

|Quick McLuhanian Guide for Transmigration - Leonardo Martins|
From Leonardo on what this album is about.... “It’s a vast matter – if someone reads the title “Quick McLuhanian Guide for Transmigration”, he or she could think that it’s about the soul “jumping” from a body to other. I believe McLuhan had in mind that the message would become a fusion of perceptions caused by and brought by (mass) communication media. Is the media the message as well? Back to Pythagoras, he assured that he could remember all his transmigrations, but if he stopp...

|Orchard & Ponds - the slow burn|
the 3rd collection of songs
|Orchard & Ponds - Preparations|
Completely done behind closed doors, and in somewhat secrecy from even the old bag and the little one who shares the apartment with me. A strange affair full of poor recording techniques and overly thought out ideas. But it was not a solo effort at all and is based all around that old bag and the little one I share my space, my time, and heart with.
|Orchard & Ponds - low resistance|
to be listened to at low volumes. dimly lit rooms. all hours of the day.
|HMS - Resolution|
It is a humid and roasted evening in 2003…Mid summer in York,PA somewhere on Linden avenue…A now vacated place where creativity and home brew flowed with equal importance and strength for many years with the vastly creative Peter Richards at the helm….It was here that I first met Erich Steiger…a friendship that would have an ebb and flow not much different than the small brook that ran behind my house growing up….At times clear and fresh….teeming with life….Other times but a trickl...
|Rodzmatos - Untimely Music|
There is a physical pace to life, set against the metronome of society's busier circles, that a person can spend their whole lives trying to keep up with, escaping from, or pushing against. If one were to work against this speed it becomes easy to fall out of sync with things. Feelings of alienation creep in as thunderous marches call out in the city streets and you are left behind a crumpled mess...
|We are Bright & Broken - We are Bright & Broken|
Two studies for electric guitar, sine generator and ring modulator. Personal revelation through deconstruction. Footsteps on marble. Fever reverie. Coming to in the snow. Note: These tracks contain frequencies far below the capabilities of earbuds and computer speakers. Please listen accordingly. We are Bright & Broken is Joe Houpert of loud & sad.

|Trip - Julia LaDense|
Very happy to present our 20th release from Julia LaDense, entitled Trip. I first discovered Julia’s work through my good buddy Tyler at Electric Tapes, he released I Vote Everyday a few months back and I highly recommend it. From there I discovered a handful of other Julia releases and you can keep up with them through her via her website. It is not just the stark minimalism that first put attention on her music, it is also the bold attitude presented behind it, that makes it clear she makes ...

|In The Cave Of The Ancients|
|Until the Spirit New Sensation Takes Hold - Rodzmatos|
At the end of the day, Travel is a rewarding endeavor. But in the moment, travel is warfare. Whether it’s a simple road trip, or an international jaunt, the body knows it’s in survival mode. There's the constant bombardment of foreign sights and sounds. And even in moments of something so familiar like eating or sleeping, there's always the constant unease of something being off, something being unlike home...
|Erich Steiger - Avant Forte|
Erich Steiger floated into my purview during a hazy period and almost as quickly as he appeared...I was gone. Moving just down the way but into a whole different scene and having different experiences. As time began to strip away the refuse from our lives Erich's creative contributions and intentions became more and more clear. Mr. Steiger's growing expertise lies in his ability to survive the stripping away of excess and to emerge clear and intoxicating through the distillation of audio...
|Splits Vol. 2 - fashionmasters|
There's a certain comfort in the music contained in this latest Pandafuzz release. But don't let it surprise you when you're greeted by the din contained within. The comfort of Splits 2 is more akin to the comfort one finds while in the confines of say, a commuter train, or passenger plane. The real or imagined polyrhythms, the full frequency noise, the rail screech...its a contradictory experience...
|Martin Back - Unstable Rotation Centers|
The fall rains, so rarely seen this year, blow cold against my cheek. Generally during this time of year I find myself leaning on old records such as The Nudes by Pele to guide me into winter. Being my first hall season out here in Minnesota the season moves much faster and with more aggression. Needing something more direct and to the point Martin Back’s newest release, Unstable Rotation Centers, provides this new experience...
|Rad Manor - Extravagance|
Rad Manor operates on some pathways commonly found in the early days of the pandafuzz initiative, some of which I am sure floats around the internet. It is nice to revisit those sounds and it is even better to find new energy behind them...and it is this new energy that brings Rad Manor's EP Extravagance to the forefront of the pandafuzz wave in 2011. Nostalgic comparisons aside, Rad Manor's Jacob Wright taps into something quite human and emotional...electronic music bathed in dust but aimed di...
|kol9remesez - liffektroHika - kol9remesez|
I am literally without words here today friends. kol9remesez, and their/his/her new album liffektroHika has emerged from nowhere and knocked me over into a snow bank. There is very little information out there but there are some compimentary releases available: http://www.archive.org/details/foot161 http://www.archive.org/details/foot153 And I recommend both of them almost as much as I recommend this one! Some personal words from kol9remesez… Experimentally like a piece of dried wind overfilli...
|Dementia and Hope Trails – Song Of Masuka|
Dementia and Hope Trails comes to my humble label from a place I once called home….Maryland and what a treat it is to have him here. The purveyor of Rainbow Bridge Recordings who has released recordings from fellow pandafuzz-er Julia LaDense (and a wealth of other well known artists such as Andrew Coltrane and Red Electric Rainbow), and the driving force behind a veritable tidal wave of activity ranging from tapes to live performances…Dementia and Hope Trails provides us with an homage to hi...
|Leaving In Waves - Clayton Alpha|
I’ve been here before… And I know that, whether or not they are ready to admit, many people have been here before… Abstract music is just that; abstract. The artist can make suggestions, in titles and artwork, but in the end, the listener holds all the power. Once the needle drops, or the headphones slip on, the creator can only hope that they’ve done their due diligence in getting what they need across, be it as abstract of concrete as they like...
|Love Cult - Live in Saransk|
Love Cult is the whole damn package. Comprised of Ivan Afanasyev and Anya Kuts, currently based out of the Republic of Karelia, they are involved in a variety of projects ranging from Love Cult and its associated acts and tours to running the fine label Full of Nothing. Beyond that they design and package all of those releases themselves, this release being no different. Documenting a live show from Saransk with Bedroom Bear, who also makes appearances with this duo from time to time, this recor...
